1:02 am
the italian authorities are saying the number of people who they were able to rescue from the sea is 24. as far as the maltese authorities, as many as 50 people survived. last night, the italian authorities issued a statement in which they said had questioned a bangladeshi survivor from the tragedy who said as many as 950 people may have been on board the ship. a much larger number than the original 650 that italian authorities were quoting. they said this bangladeshi survivor said during the course of this disaster that many of the people who were on the lower decks of the ship were not able to escape because the human traffickers had actually locked them in. as far as the traffickers go the italian authorities say they are conducting a widespread
1:03 am
investigation of people involved in this tragic business of human trafficking. they have detained an unknown number of individuals from sahara africa. this investigation is conducted in rome and milan as well. john. >> ben wedeman, potentially hundreds of people killed there. u.s. officials are condemning the isis beheading of christians. you see the captors wearing orange jump suits. national security counsel officials are calling it a mass murder. it is being called an attempted discord amongst religious communities. we have nic robertson joining us now. nic. >> reporter: john you have isis putting together a 30-minute propaganda video which tells
1:04 am
christian how to live under the rule of isis. if they pay a non-muslim tax, they can live under the rule of isis. it shows the isis brutality. they killed two groups of ethiopian christians. killed in two separate locations in libya. that is interesting here. they beheaded a group of 15 on the mediterranean coast. the other group of ethiopian christians were murdered by gunshot. they were shot in the southwest of libya. isis is trying to create the impression it has control and sway over large parts of libya. that is incorrect. isis is relatively small in libya. they have done this in conjunction with isis in iraq and isis in syria. they used the same media
1:05 am
organization to put together the video. they use the example of christians in northern iraq to show how christians can live under isis rule. another brutal murderous video by isis. john. >> trying to portray the image of coordination. nic robertson in london. thank you. the fbi has arrested at least six men in minneapolis and san diego in connection with an isis-inspired terror plot. details expected at a news conference later today. we know the plot involved young people traveling to syria or trying to in order to join up with isis. authorities say there was never any direct threat to the public. nuclear talks with iran resume in vienna this week. the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini slammed the u.s. about the myth of the nuclear intentions. so far, he is still backing the negotiations.

1:25 am
site that he was interested in sitting down at the table and negotiating that this impasse between yemen's houthi forces would actually sit down and negotiate with houthi leaders statements and defiance and his appearance to blame the united states for the situation in yemen, that is now off the table. all this as saudi air strikes which hit a number of depots. we cannot confirm that. what we know through aid agencies is the situation through the humanitarian aspect that continues to deteriorate. the numbers increased those displaced from their homes. 7.5 million people are caught in a humanitarian disaster. all the while, al qaeda's hold

1:31 am
ben. >> reporter: john we're in the port of katanya in sicily where we are awaiting the arrival of the italian coast guard ship "gregoretti" which docked a while ago and unloaded the bodies of 24 people which died at sea. the ship will be coming later today with the 28 survivors. that is what the italian authorities are saying is the number of people who they were able to rescue from this sea. now as far as the maltese authorities, they say as many as 50 people survived. now last night, the italian authorities issued a statement in which they said they had questioned a bangladeshi survivor from the tragedy who said as many as 950 people may have been on board the ship. a much larger number than the original 650 of the italian
1:32 am
authorities were quoting. they said the bangladeshi survivor said that during the course of the disaster many of the people on the lower decks of the ship were not able to escape because the human traffickers had actually locked them in. as far as the traffickers go, the italian authorities say they are conducting a widespread investigation of people involved in this tragic business of human trafficking. they have detained an unknown number of individuals from sahara africa. this investigation is conducted in sicily and also rome and milan as well. john. >> ben wedeman for us covering the tragedy. new this morning, u.s. officials are condemning an apparent isis beheading of two groups of prisoners. you can see one group here part of the new isis video campaign.
1:33 am
they are believed to be ethiopian christians. the killings are being called a brutal mass murder. they are being called a quote quote attempt to promote discord between religious communities. we have nic robertson with us from london. the latest of the video appears to be coordination. >> reporter: it is. this appears to be another isis video. this is an over 30-minute video. the principle message is the christian communities living under isis control either you change to islam or you pay a non-muslim tax or face death. that is part of the message. another part of the message is isis has control in various parts of libya. one group of people executed here who they claim are ethiopian christians one group
1:34 am
executed on the mediterranean sea in the north of libya. the other group executed by gunshot on the southern borders of libya. this effort to show they control across the country. the other part of this narrative is because the video has been put together by the same media group isis uses in iraq and syria and it takes the elements supposedly from different areas of libya and they are put together by isis main media arm, if you will. this again designed to show the spread across libya, but how they are coordinated with isis in other parts of the middle east john. >> nic isis may not control much of libya as it wants to appear. it does have greater position in many other countries in.
1:35 am
>> reporter: it has positions on the northern coast. it is able to execute attacks outside of tripoli. it is on the attack against the government in the very east of libya as well as smaller groupings along the northern coast. there are other islamist factions there. what isis is doing in libya is what they did in syria and iraq. use the instability to grow presence if you will sow their seeds. >> thank you, nic robertson. the fbi has arrested six men in minneapolis and san diego in connection with an isis-inspired terror plot. we know the plot involved young people traveling to syria or trying to in order to join up with isis. authorities say there was never any direct threat to the public. nuclear talks with iran resume in vienna this week.

1:37 am
rough end to the week. friday markets fell across the board. dow shed 279 points. the nasdaq down similar percentage. now that was largely due to the chinese government announcing regulations on trading. some more bad news out of china. the central bank recognizing the need more more stimulus. despite the concern about the china growth we are close to record highs. the dow 2.5% away from the record high. wall street will be looking ahead to a week of big earnings. we will hear from ibm and morgan stanley later today. erpgs earnings are expected to fall 3% this quarter. the first profit decline since 2009. >> cristina alesci thanks. hundreds protesting the death of a man severely injured while being arrested.

1:39 am
make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to
